donna frankland (uk) Posted October 6, 2007 Report Share Posted October 6, 2007 which, as you can all imagine, is the very worst thing that can happen my mate and i went for a really nice long dog walk through bridal paths and field to get to the woods. said woods are public footpaths and public bridal ways. NOT a scramble track. we were walking up one path and heard the annoying little whiney buzzing of mini moto thingies. came to a crossroads and saw them. did they slow down? no. did they turn around? no!!!! we put the youngsters on leads and carried on (i do NOT take my dogs out for their excercise for them to have to go on lead, the point of going to the woods and fields is for them to be able to run!). now possibly at this point i was being pig headed but i refused to go off the path, hell i dont train my dogs to stick to the paths for years to then have to do the opposite! i train them to stay on the path ESPECIALLY in the woods so we dont disturb wildlife. damn kids keep on coming though dont they? oh yeah! when they got to us, they were about 6! there is no way in hell that is safe! the parents were way up the end of the track and unable to see there kids. the track looks smooth enough but is riddled with hidden holes etc and fallen tree branches are at the sides. gods know what injuries would happen if one came off anyhoo, we carried on, kid comes back past. at this point we can see the parents who are at the next junction of paths. so we decided to take the path going left, away from where they are buzzing up and down. where do they send the kids next? oh yeah, down the path we have taken. 1/2 a mile away is a scramble track!!! why not take them there!!!!! dont get me wrong i'm not against kids having fun, but the local woods are not the place for this! can you imagine what would happen if they came round the corner into horses?? would it really have been that much effort to get the kids to stop for the 3 minutes it took us to go up the path. did they really then have to change paths to the one we went on to avoid them????
